the shot with your hot quarterback here. >> al: and romo throws. and that is caught. and that's ogletree. >> cris: guess who? >> al: for a first down to the 39 yard line. and taking us to the 2:00 warning. and almost to a dallas victory. >> cris: justin tryon again. >> al: the kid from queens, ogletr ogletree, with the night of his career. and dallas up by seven at the 2:00 warning.
>> al: michele with an interview at the end of the game on the wendy's post-game report. bob, tony, and rodney with a look at the game from their perspective. and we will take a peek ahead to sunday night. so the dallas cowboys can run out the clock. they can fly home. they will have come in here and they will have a week and a half off. they next play in seattle a week from sunday. and the giants will next play here a week from sunday against tampa bay. for the cowboys it has been nothing but frustration, desperation, and the rest. and tonight ogletree, who until recently was not really officially the third receiver. that was up for grabs. and what a night he has had.
with two touchdowns, eight catches. and he's been the star. >> cris: well, and now think about what this does for the dallas cowboys offensively. as jason witten gets back in there for them. dez bryant, miles austin on the outside. now who do you -- that's what the hope is. and throw in demarco murray, who i thought had a brilliant game tonight. jason witten said we have to get guys to share the burden, can't put the whole thing on tony romo. tony romo put this team on his back tonight but he had a lot more help this evening than he had a season ago. >> al: so for jerry jones, we mentioned this last year, the team he didn't want to see last year was "us." they've been terrible home and road. but i think we're back in the good graces, at least for a month or so. >> cris: everything they did was right. they get the two new guards in
and the running game works. but two new corners and the move of bruce carter into the linebacker position gives them two speedy linebackers, two bump and run corners on the outside. this is a different dallas football team. >> al: dallas cowboys come in, they don't know about witten with the lacerated spleen, austin, and bryant had played so little. ogletree had not been a character that was going to become a star in any of his prior seasons with these guys. and all of a sudden ascends tonight. here's garrett, whose team was coughing up lead after lead over the past year and a half. and they come in here and win it on opening night. 24-17. and the wendy's post-game report on the other side of the break.
it. the cowboys come into metlife stadium and win 24-17. michele tafoya is standing by with tony romo, kevin ogletree, and demarcus ware. here's michele. >> tony, you come in here to new york. you're facing the defending super bowl champions. big environment. how did you guys overcome that and play as well as you did? >> well, our approach is to take it one play, one day at a time and get better. and good or bad play, you've just got to keep doing it. disregard it, go to the next play and keep going. and whether you're playing in a parking lot or in giants stadium against the world champs you've got to be able to execute the plays. i think our team has done a great job taking that approach day in and day out and it's been exciting to see. >> end of the second quarter you guys score your first touchdown and from that point you put your foot -- you know, your pedal to the metal and kept going. what was behind that? what changed? >> i think you need to have that killer instinct, especially against a guy like eli and the team they have.
when they lead we've got to battle and come back and you just have to really have that killer instinct and say we've got to do it now, it's time. so we kept having that approach each play. >> tony, thanks. someone who did that tonight and proved it was your guy kevin ogletree over here. you came in, kevin, with 25 career catches, no touchdowns. you had your first two career touchdowns tonight. how do you explain the success with tony? >> just work. we've put in the hard work, like tony said. day in and day out, off-season, training camp. and you know, it's good to develop that continuity with your quarterback and the offense. and we felt good out there for the first game. and you know, we're going to try and keep rolling. >> there had been some questions in the off-season, who would be the cowboys' number three receiver. what did you expect coming into tonight? >> just to, you know, be at my best, do whatever it takes to help my team and be accountable. we're going to see if that continues, and we're going to play it like that. >> thank you so much, guys. let's turn to demarcus ware. what a performance by the defense tonight.
how did you guys keep pressure on eli manning all night long? >> you know, we sort of went back to the old game. and sort of seeing how he can linger around a little bit. we started on otas and mini camp and training camp just really trying to get pressure on the quarterback. that's what we had to do. we had to get it in key situations, and we did. >> and you did. two more sacks tonight. you're over the century mark. second fastest to that number behind the late great reggie white. personally what does that accomplishment mean to you? >> it's an honor when you say anything about reggie white, how he played the game, his demeanor, i'm trying to model myself the same way. it's just an honor to be even mentioned with his name. >> two big additions to the defensive backfield, wrandon carr and mo claiborne. what did they do tonight that was special? >> they made eli hold the ball a little more. he couldn't go off his first and second reads. gave the pass rush a lot more time to get there and create a little bit of havoc out there. and just having that opportunity
to have morris claiborne and brandon carr and all those guys on the same page was just awesome. >> congratulations on the win. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> all right, michele, this is the ninth year that the defending super bowl champion has had the honor of opening up the nfl season at home. the previous eight the defending champ at home had won every time. the dallas cowboys come in here and upend that trend. coach, how did they do it? >> well, we said at halftime, bob, both teams were ugh struggling running the ball. one of the quarterbacks was going to have to get hot. and tonight it was tony romo. dallas made the decision to go after these dbs -- >> i really felt like this was the turning point, this is where tony romo gained his confidence. tight man-to-man coverage and threw a bullet right to dez bryant. >> and then this is what tony does best, what the giants were fearing. when he gets out of the pocket, he can improvise and make plays. kevin ogletree read it, read the body language, went deep and got open. the next ball to ogletree was a double move. this was a blitz. they read it. and a great call by romo to get
the ball to ogletree. he. >> and this is the third down -- this is a first down and 30. and the confidence, the decision-making by tony romo to see something, give a hand signal, run a double move into double coverage, and miles austin coming up with a huge play down the field. we questioned if tony romo can make these plays. >> yes. and with the game on the line they needed a first down to ice it. comes back to ogletree and wins the ball game. tony romo won this game for dallas tonight. >> and he had lost the last five games he had started against the giants. tonight 22 of 29 for 307. three tds and one pick. >> the secondary was deflated. they lost michael coe. and they've made a conscious effort to go after him. but tony romo plays smart, he plays sound. he delivered the ball on target tonight. >> we talked about demarco murray, his ability to take some of that pressure off tony romo and run the ball. they had a lot of success running the ball. but tony romo, you have to give him credit because no one
thought he could come into giants stadium on the road and make those clutch throws in the third and fourth quarter and he did that today. >> all right, rodney, tony, thanks very much. we'll see you on sunday. the 2012 season -- here i am. right over here. the 2012 season is under way. the league's 30 other teams will be in action this sunday and monday. and you can get the latest nfl news and information from mike florio by tuning in to the all new "pro football talk" which airs tomorrow at 5:00 p.m. and every weekday on the nbc sports network, presented by chevrolet. the cowboys beat the giants 24-17. al and cris back to wrap things up after this. turns out he's an alien. the whole thing's one big dream. how about the one where a group of friends encounter something totally unexpected? very spicy... how's it end? with you driving us to wendy's. wendy's asiago ranch chicken club is totally unexpected. our boldly spicy whole filet... applewood smoked bacon... and natural asiago cheese. way past ordinary... that's wendy's way. now that's better. and now get a frosty for just 99 cents.

talk about is peyton manning. it's what we'll talk about right now. everybody wants to see him in a different uniform. how effective will he be? the town will be going crazy. what a night that's going to be sunday. >> yeah. and i got a chance to watch the game tapes, obviously, of him going along. and the first two preseason games, eh, you know, it didn't look like him. and then in the third one he took a big-time shot. just as he was releasing the ball, completed the ball down the field about 40 yards. and from that moment on it was just the peyton manning show. here he goes. the nfl, they don't give you any easy spots out there. so you're going to come back, you're going to get traded to denver. okay. we're going to give you the number one defense in all of football. here come the pittsburgh steelers. we understand james harrison even practiced a bit today too. >> right. and they're of course in a very, very tough decision where you've got the cincinnati bengals, who went to the playoffs last yeah, obviously. we've got the baltimore ravens. but again, pittsburgh figures to be a team that figures to be very much there at the end. >> well, no question. and ben roethlisberger is going to match him throw for throw on the outside.
